Yet more evidence that Americans no longer consider their animal companions as mere pets but as an actual member of the family:
DirecTV is set to air a new, 24-hour channel for dogs bored at home called DOGTV.

DOGTV aims to help dogs who suffer from separation anxiety when their owners are away by providing “relaxing, stimulating and behavior-improving content” packaged in three- to six-minute-long segments, according to the channel’s website. Read the rest at ABC News.
